Young people who are recovering from alcohol and other drug problems are everywhere - in our high schools and colleges and communities and workplaces and families. Part two of the “Teens Using Drugs” series concludes with a young person in recovery sharing his or her story – how it was, what happened, and how it is for them now; sharing his or her experience, strength and hope in recovery; showing by example that young people with the disease of addiction can recover and lead happy, healthy, productive, responsible lives.
We are very grateful to the young people who agreed to share their stories below, and we hope you enjoy reading them!
